Circle Of Life Ceremonies UK

Renewal Of Vows Ceremonies.

A Circle Of Life renewal of marriage vows ceremony will be unique, appropriate and enjoyable in any of these circumstances.

A bespoke renewal of marriage vows ceremony is for married couples who wish to celebrate in a unique and personal experience, sharing their original vows to each other or more up to date vows, which take into consideration the history that they have shared together. This is a beautiful chance to renew their commitment to one another.

Why renew our vows?
More married couples are choosing to renew their marriage vows.
For some it’s a unique opportunity to celebrate a special anniversary.
For others it helps to confirm their love and commitment to each other.
For many it is a personal statement of their love for each other.
On rare occasions it may be because one or other of the partnership becomes ill.

Choosing the best time to renew your vows.
The ceremony is often associated with a special wedding anniversary, but it does not have to be and it can be the precursor to a party or celebration.
Renewing your marriage vows can be just as appropriate for couples at any stage of their marriage.
It may be particularly relevant to those who have been through a period of unsettlement, which has put a strain on their relationship and now wish to celebrate their renewed love and commitment.
Where couples have married abroad they often have few family and friends with them. On their return home they may want for some form of ceremony which their family and friends can share.

What information will be needed?
Whilst this ceremony has no legal effect it is a public statement by a couple of their continuing affection, love and commitment to each other. Couples will need to produce a copy of their original marriage certificate when booking a ceremony.
Who can renew their vows?
Any married couple may arrange a renewal of marriage vows ceremony.
The couple can be of any age and be married for any length of time.
You do not have to live in the area where you hold your ceremony.

Your unique ceremony.
You choose the content of the ceremony from various choices and just as no two couples are the same, no two renewal of vows ceremonies are the same.
As you go through the many choices and make your selections with Marie, you will be creating a unique event that the two of you will treasure and your guests will remember ‘Eternal footprints create lasting memories that stay in our hearts’. It is a good idea to take time and think carefully about the options that are appropriate and have meaning for you both. The special people in your lives can take part in your ceremony; your children, guests who were at your wedding and special friends and relatives.

Certificate.
You may also choose to ask two people to witness the signing of the certificate of your special event.
These can be your original witnesses or a new choice to suit your present circumstances.
